Deuterated water is readily available in high purity, and is
relatively cheap.  It is not radioactive.  No special license is
required to purchase or handle it, unlike radioactive materials. You
could drink it, in moderate amounts, with no ill effect.  

Some people drink at the fountain of knowledge....others just gargle.
